That's another classic 1966 gray-tone b&w Herbie Greene photograph.

His best known album cover from the mid-'60s is Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane.

He also did the photos that make up the collage on the cover of the 1st Grateful Dead album.

The Haight-Ashbury street sign (before someone swiped it in the late '60s - must have used a welding torch, late at night - wonder who's got it now?) -
with the whole band you have linked is definitely one of thee coolest foggy city by the bay mid-'60s moments captured in one photo.

It should have been an early album cover ... or even the cover of Rhino's Birth of the Dead (they used a lesser pic by far for the cover, though it is from late '65, a true "birth" certificate.)..

btw, get how some folks dismiss the '65 era...

the photos taken by Herbie Greene of The Warlocks at many locations during the course of that 1st year in the life of the Dead are perhaps even better than having live audio of them from '65...

but the Autumn/Golden State Recorder studio demos they cut in late '65 are as good as any folk rock from that year, and (unlike The Byrds, other than McGuinn) the Grateful Dead played their own instruments on their 1st serious recordings.

True stereo, crisp, evocative, real '60s, so what's not to like?

Well, I think that poster of that photo you and Styrofoam had must be a valuable artifact today.

That's the real Dead, as I see 'em.

Hey CPW! Damn, it's been a long time it seems to me, or have I just missed you when you've been around?

Hope all is well--just feel like I haven't had the chance to say hello for a long spell.

hey WT, how's it?

Been out of touch for a month (Feb) due to a malicious spyware infecting my main pc.

Using a rinky dink OS toilet seat iBook now, at least it can get on line, barely!

Been thinking, even dreaming of the good old days though:

Crap--I wish I dreamed about the DEAD...can't recall ever having had one; at best it was one about the experience, but more along the lines of finding out I was in my underwear while standing in the ticket line...

Anyhow, glad to have you back as we early era types have to stick together. Hope the computer antics don't keep you too busy.
